Aries (21st March – 19th April)

Moses, Muhammad and Jesus were born as Aries. Also, Russell Crowe, Marlon Brando, Mariah Carey, Charlie Chaplin, Eddie Murphy, Norah Jones, Elton John, Adolf Hitler, Jackie Chan, Celine Dion, Eric Clapton, Johann Sebastian Bach, Andy Garcia, Quentin Tarantino, Francis Ford Coppola, Bette Davis, Diana Ross, Shirley Maclaine, Rene Descartes, MC Hammer and Anthony Perkins are the celebrities of Aries birth.

According to Gahl Sasson, Aries is the begining of the Spring and first sign of the zodiac. So, they are children forever. They love to be in danger and they survive through luck. They are the Joker card of Tarot. These people are born as leaders. Whatever they want to take, they achieve easily because they have the natural ability of persuasion. According to astrologists, they are very successful about sex. They generally have an athletic body. They are cheerful, confident and smart. Astrologists say that Aries will stay young forever because they never kill their inner child.

In Tarot, Aries is symbolised by the Emporer and the Chariot.

Here is a humorous description of the Aries personality by the astrologist and psychologist Debra Silverman.

Taurus ( 20th April – 20th May)

Stevie Wonder, Barbara Streisand, Evita Peron, Salvador Dali, Shirley MacLaine, William Shakespeare, Tony Blair and George Clooney are Taureans.

Generally, Taurus men have a charming voice. For this zodiac sign, the most important values are money, comfort and pleasure. Also, they have a high level stubborn character. It is very hard to change these people’s habits. It is not easy to make them angry. However, they can be like a volcano suddenly. Astrologists say that women especially of this zodiac sign can have charming dimples.

Taurus are represented by the Empress and The Hierophant Tarot cards. The Empress card symbolises a self examination of Taureans’ own values.

Here is Debra describing the Taurus character.

 Gemini (21st May – 21st June)

Che Guevara, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood, Nicole Kidman, Anna Kournikova, Naomi Campbell, Kylie Minogue, John F. Kennedy, Elizabeth Hurley, Morgan Freeman, Paul McCartney are the Gemini celebrities.

These people are famous for their moody personality. They are the real social butterflies. Also, Gemini people are smart and attractive. They love adventure, new things and researching. They prefer to speak about every subject instead of talking about their emotions. If you like a Gemini person, you need to have an interesting personality because they potentially get bored quickly.

Gemini are represented by the Lovers and the Sun Tarot cards. Cheer, youth, cuirousty come from The Sun. The Lovers card represents integrity. If they can combine their two parts, they can be so strong.

Here is Debra’s Gemini play;

Cancer (22nd June – 22nd July)

Princess Diana, Tom Hanks, Pamela Anderson, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Brigitte Nielsen, Robin Williams, Bill Cosby, Mike Tyson, Carlos Santana, Blondie, Julius Caesar, Nelson Mandela, Ernest Hemingway, Mireille Mathieu, Barbara Cartland, Louis Armstrong, Ringo Starr and Franz Kafka are the some of famous Cancers.

These people don’t like to show their real personality to the others because they are afraid of hurt more than all other signs. These people have the most emotional and sensitive sign of the zodiac. Cancer people don’t like to hurt other people. They find it hard to trust people. However, when they trust someone, they always will be near her or him. Their worst side is they can close up  and it is very hard for them to open up for a while.

Cancer is represented by the Chariot and the Moon in Tarot cards. The Chariot tells; “Drive your car”. If Cancers trust themselves and solve their internal conflicts, they can achieve what they want. If Cancers can do this, they will find their true homes. The Moon card shows the dark side of Cancer; They shouldn’t be overwhelmed with fear. They  should take bold desicions and  shouldn’t get lost in their dark labyrinth.

What does Debra Silverman tell us about Cancers? Let’s watch!

Leo (23rd July – 22nd August)

Fidel Castro, Alfred Hitchcock, Robert De Niro, Bill Clinton, Madonna, Carl Gustav Jung, George Bernard Shaw, Mata Hari, Napoleon Bonaparte, Yves Saint Laurent, Stanley Kubrick and Charles Bukowski are the some of celebrities who born in under the  Leo zodiac sign.

This is the king of forest. How they love to show themselves! Who could love himself/herself like a Leo? These people are definitely posh. Leos can be so energetic and charming. However, they forget to think about the subject at hand before showing themselves.

The Strength is the tarot card of Leo. The card warn Leos about the danger of desire for power and control. They shouldn’t be so snobby and obstinate. Leo’s real kingdom is in his/her inner soul.

Virgo (23rd August – 22nd September)

These are some of the famous people under the Virgo sign; Yaser Arafat, Gloria Estefan, Johann Christian Bach, Stephen King, Michael Jackson, Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch, D.H. Lawrence, Cameron Diaz, Julio Iglesias, Mother Terasa, Ingrid Bergman, Leo Tolstoy, Peter Sellers, Agatha Christie and H.G. Wells.

Virgos can be very grouchy. They look so much at the details. OCD is a common trait among Virgos. They like to judge people. Virgos are so hardliner people. However, they are also very intelligent people.

The Hermit and Justice are the Virgo’s Tarot cards. The Hermit tells us that if  the Virgo focuses on its inner self  and intuition, it will discover perfection of soul. Virgo should serve the world like a beacon of light. Justice card reminds the Virgo to be balance. They shouldn’t be so quick to criticise people.

Libra (23rd September – 22nd October)

Benjamin Netanyahu, Brigitte Bardot, C. Zeta Jones, Christopher Reeves, J. Claude Van Damme, Jimmy Carter, John Lennon, Julio Iglesias, Margaret Thatcher, Merly Steep, Michael Douglas, Oscar Wilde, Pacarotti, Roger Moore, Serena Williams and Sylvia Kristel are some Libran celebrities.

Here is the most trendy sign of the zodiac. The sons and daughters of Venus are born with an ability to be glamorous. These people are definitely cute; baby faced men and attractive women. They try to keep their balance like a scales and it makes them tried. They live for peace.

In his book Tristesse de la Balance: Et Autres Signes, Jacques A. Bertrand says, “If a Libran had to hate something, he would hate pain. He would hate giving pain to others, as well as his own suffering. A Libran does not like pain.”

There is only one danger about Librans, they can be the person who steals your love because they love flirting so much, and they like to play with someone who likes them.

Some people believe that Justice card represents Libra in Tarot. However, some people believe that the Temperance card is a better match. Justice reminds Librans to look to their inner side before evaluating events. Librans should learn to balance giving and taking. Only this way they can achieve justice.

Here is Debra’s comments on Librans.


Scorpio (23rd October – 21st November) 

Bill Gates, Alfred Nobel, Leonardo Di Caprio, Demi Moore, Rock Hudson, Alain Delon, Martin Luther, Indria Gandhi, Prince Charles, Carl Sagan, Claude Monet, Robert Louis Stevenson, Albert Camus, Ezra Paunds and Boris Becker are famous Scorpios.

Gahl Sasson tells a story in his book Cosmic Navigator. A wiseman had been staying near the lake and a scorpion had been looking for help from him. The wiseman said to the scorpion “I can’t rescue you because I know you will sting me”. The scorpion continued to ask for help with its persuasive style; “I promise I won’t sting you…” At the end the wiseman rescues the scorpion and yet the scorpion stings him. A person was walking close by and asks; “You know that it will sting you. So, why did you rescue the scorpion?” The wiseman answered him “Because it is its nature.”

Scorpios are the walking sex appeal of the zodiac. Many women think that Scorpio men are so sexy. Maybe, this belief comes from the strong connection between Scorpios and sex. They love to be on the opposite side. Also, they live for passion. They are not bad people, it is  just that their nature is based on their sting. So, when they say bad things to you, you just need not to take  them so seriously.

Astrologists call Scorpios “The Prince of Darkness”. Scorpio is symbolised by the Death tarot card. Scorpios shouldn’t be the prisoner of illussions which they were created by themselves. Scorpios should find the light into the darkness.

Debra Silverman explains Scorpio like this;

 Sagittarius (22nd November – 21st December)

Walt Disney, Ludwig von Beethoven, Charles De Gaulle, Brad Pitt, Rita Moreno, Liv Ullman, Willy Brandt, Gustave Flaubert, Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra, Kirk Douglas, Woody Allen, Bruce Lee, Carlo Ponti, David Carradine and Emily Dickinson are some Sagittarian celebrities.

“I am taut like an arrow” can be the Sagittarian manifesto. These people are the best friends. It is  a beautiful thing to spend time with them and laugh. They will probably seek love all their lives because love is something interesting for them. They need to follow others when they feel someone belongs to them. They are the real free spirits. They love to earn money but spend it generously. They cannot be patient, particularly if there is lack of intelligence in their environment.

The Hierophant card represents Sagittarius in Tarot.They shouldn’t have blind confidence in a belief system. If they can learn themselves deeply, they can be great preachers because they can learn to speak in a language that appeals to people’s intuition.

Debra, tell us about the Sagittarian personality;

Capricorn ( 22nd December – 19th January)

Benjamin Franklin, Henry Miller, Moliere, Isaac Newton, Elvis Presley, Ava Gardner, Federico Fellini, Rudyard Kipling, Simione de Beauvoir, Martin Luther King, Michael Schumacher and Stephen Hawking are the some famous Capricorns.

“Power is my key”

The real lone wolf. Capricorns can show themselves as a cold person because of their natural suspicion. “It’s a hard knock life” for Capricorns.They experience the hardest things in the world because of their ruling planet Saturn. Their experiences make them old very quickly. They wear a very cold or easy going faced mask but they hide a very sensitive and emotional person under the mask. You can see them as honest and direct but that is only the visible face of the mountain. They have an internal secret and charming world. To explain this to the others is the hardest thing. They are the goats on the wild mountain. If they work so hard, it is because they love money too much. Money gives them a sense of power, and power protects them from a dangerous world. If they love a person, they will love him/her forever, even if this relationship has finished forever, because they have already given the key to the secret door once. Capricorns are the most loyal and royal among the signs of the zodiac. Everybody should have at least one Capricorn friend in their lives.

We can see the Capricorn symbol with a fish tail in old books (see picture above). The fish tail shows Capricorn’s connection with the inner world and strong sense of perception. This figure illustrates how Capricorns have a strong, secret emotional world inside. Also, in ancient books, Capricorn is shown as a Faun’s figure. It symbolises their secret darkness and their sexuality.

According to Gahl Sasson, Capricorn is the begining of the winter and the begining of the end of the zodiac circle. It carries all the pain, fear and negative emotions of the other signs of the zodiac. Capricorns shouldn’t allow themselves to go over to their dark side.

Devil is the tarot card of Capricorn. Their strong ambition and their fears can create a devil-like mentality. Capricorns can be dictators. The Devil card warns Capricorns against this.

Debra has a funny explanation for Capricorns;

Aquarius (20th January – 18th February)

Here is some Aquarian celebrities; Jennifer Aniston, Abraham Lincoln, Bob Marley, Christian Dior, Clark Gable, Cybil Shephard, Gene Hackman, George Kennedy, Humphrey Bogart, Jack Lemmon, James Dean, John Travolta, Justin Timberlake, Kim Novak, Mendelssohn, Nastasia Kinski, Nick Nolte, Paul Newman, Ronald Reagan, Schubert, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Shakira.

These are the believers in fantasy, conspiracy theories, alliens, fairytales… Aquarius people are the most different ones. They think a lot and find a lot.

Aquarians can be geniuses. They see the world differently from others. They love a person once and they have the potantial to love him/her forever in different ways. Basicly, they create a person who doesn’t exist and compares him/her with their partners. So, relationships are complicated for them.

The Star tarot card represents Aquarius in Tarot. The Star recommends peace and harmony. Whatever hope, healing, future it offers, one must remember that it might not happen immediately. Like Aquarius, its vision is for tomorrow, not today.

…This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the minds true liberation…” (The Age of Aquarius- 5th Dimension)

Hopefully Debra will tell us when the age of Aquarius will begin 🙂

Pisces ( 19th February – 20th March)

Rudolph Nureyev, Victor Hugo, Henri Ibsen, John Steinbeck, W. Grimm, Mikail Gorbaçov, Michael Caine, G. Washington, Jerry Lewis, Prince Albert, Rosa Luxemburg, A. Vivaldi, Ursula Andress, Frederic Chopin, Marlon Brando, Michelangelo, Albert Einstein, N. Copernicus, Shran Stone, Bruce Willis, Kurt Cobain, Alexander Graham Bell, Liza Minelli, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Rihanna are some Piscean celebrities.

This is the mystery sign. Pisceans tend to be religious, spiritual or mystical. However, they show themselves to be highly sceptical. They have deep emotions. When their psychology is positive, they make people around them happy. However, if they are in a dark mood, they can waft the people around them into the darkness. They plan everything so meticulously, and know their next steps. It is in the nature of Pisceans to tell lies without a reason.

The Pisces tarot card is The Moon. Pisceans are a creature of ever-changing moods. The Moon rules their emotions, which are Pisceans’ strong suit, especially when they use their compassionate nature to help others.

Tell us about Pisceans Debra!
